Dwarves in the Mine

Dwarves in the Mine

An interactive tour for groups of children.

Many fairy tales and legends tell of dwarves living in the mountains, where they hoard vast treasures. But what treasures were they seeking? And how did the dwarves find the treasures of the Earth?

In a side-tunnel of the St. Ignaz Gallery, children are given an age-appropriate introduction to the mining industry. Then some can “work” with sledgehammers and picks, while others transport the mined rock in wheelbarrows and bring it to the ore sorters, which in turn pound, sort and sift the “ore”. And, who knows, maybe they might even find a “gem”?
 
Booking required. Suitable for younger school groups and for children's birthdays (5-10 years of age). Duration of tour: 1½ hrs. Warm clothes and sturdy footwear required. Temperature in gallery: + 8°C. Helmets, jackets and tools are provided by the Museum.
